Habitat begins work on new house

first_imgLast month, Notre Dame’s Habitat for Humanity Club began construction on the 17th house it has built during its time as a student group. The club commits to building one house each year for a family it chooses based on stability of jobs, support systems and Christian values, according to senior Deborah Olmstead, who serves as club co-president. This year, Habitat’s house is being built for a family of four, which consists of a father and three children, Olmstead said. Their future home is located on Milburn Court in Mishawaka. It will be a one-story house, with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a basement and a garage. But Habitat does not simply hand out houses, Notre Dame senior and club co-president Olmstead said. “We do not give away houses for free,” she said. “The owner will have a mortgage that’s interest free and that’s worth the value of all the materials in the house. They pay that over 15 years.” Houses are built at the lowest cost possible by having volunteers do as much of the work as possible and by bargaining discounts for supplies from local businesses, Olmstead said. Habitat has had one regular weekend build so far this year, along with its annual Blitz Build event. The first regular build was attended by 25 to 30 volunteers and was a huge success, Olmstead said. “We finished our work two hours earlier than expected,” Olmstead said. Blitz Build takes place over Fall Break to construct the entire exterior of a home. “We invite past alumni to help us and we provide free breakfast and lunch for our volunteers,” Olmstead said. “At the end of the day we go out to dinner together and participate in social activities.” During the fall, builds take place on away football game weekends, and in the spring there is one nearly every weekend, Olmstead said. The next build is Saturday. Habitat for Humanity of St. Joseph County assists Notre Dame’s chapter of the organization. Beyond technical work such as electricity and plumbing, the house is built entirely by volunteers. “It touches me to know I’m giving families something they could not acquire on their own,” Olmstead said. Habitat’s funds come entirely from alumni donations and fundraising events. Their next event, Jail ‘N Bail, will take place Friday afternoon. For this fundraiser, students can sign up to have themselves or a friend “arrested” by NDSP and brought to a makeshift jail on South Quad. The “bailout” fee is $10. Next year, Habitat is looking to travel abroad, Olmstead said. “We hope to go abroad on a global village project and help with construction projects in either Mexico or Senegal,” she said. Olmstead, who used to be the family liaison for the club, said that she believes Habitat for Humanity enables families to provide opportunities for their children. “When I was family liaison we took a single mother and her kids to Mega Play,” Olmstead said, “and she came up to me and said I don’t get to do this kind of stuff with my kids.”last_img read more

Smacked children more successful later in life, study finds

first_imgBut children’s groups and MPs have argued that spanking is an outdated form of punishment that can cause long-term mental health problems.Marjorie Gunnoe, professor of psychology at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, said her study showed there was insufficient evidence to deny parents the freedom to determine how their children should be punished.She said: “The claims made for not spanking children fail to hold up. They are not consistent with the data.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/6926823/Smacked-children-more-successful-later-in-life-study-finds.html The Telegraph 3 January 2010A study found that youngsters smacked up to the age of six did better at school and were more optimistic about their lives than those never hit by their parents.They were also more likely to undertake voluntary work and keener to attend university, experts discovered. The research, conducted in the United States, is likely to anger children’s rights campaigners who have unsuccessfully fought to ban smacking in Britain.center_img Currently, parents are allowed by law to mete out “reasonable chastisement” on their children, providing smacking does not leave a mark or bruise. These limits were clarified in the 2004 Children’s Act.last_img read more

Odemwingie looking to repay faith

first_img “I’m very happy that the club have shown me tremendous support after some very tough times,” he told stokecityfc.com. “I’m happy that Stoke trust my ability in helping to improve and push the team on to greater things, so I’m delighted to still be a part of that. “I have had to really push myself hard, so this new contract extension is a reward for all the effort I have put in but also for the medical staff that did a great job supporting me along the way. “I really want to repay the club for having faith in me and I’m thankful for the support that everybody connected with the club has given me. “I didn’t want to leave on a note like this, I started very well here and I want to have a good season this year, which I have every faith in doing. “Mark Hughes has big ambitions and hopefully we can do better in one of the cup competitions whilst maintaining a top-half finish.” Manager Hughes’ ambitions stretch into the transfer market where he is trying to tie up a £12million deal for Inter Milan winger Xherdan Shaqiri. Former Potters favourite Terry Conroy believes it sends out the right message. Press Association The 33-year-old has agreed a deal which will keep him at the Britannia Stadium until the end of next season with the option of a further 12 months. After making his comeback last season following eight months out with a knee injury the Nigerian is keen to give something back to the Potters. “I’m excited by the chance to get Shaqiri and it certainly shows the ambition the club has,” he told The Sentinel. “Stoke is not prepared to just deal in the lower basement but go for players like this. “Mark Hughes has been astute spending-wise up to now and you did wonder if he was going to carry on looking for bargains but trying to sign this fella gives a very positive feel to the club’s ambition.” Stoke striker Peter Odemwingie is looking to repay the club’s faith in him after signing a contract extension. last_img read more

Donahue looks to benefit from balanced Syracuse attack against Bryant

first_img Published on May 9, 2014 at 2:52 pm Contact Jesse: [email protected] | @dougherty_jesse Facebook Twitter Google+ Related Stories Getting to know Syracuse’s 1st-round opponent Bryant Resurgent Daddio prepares to face biggest challenge yet in Bryant’s Massa in NCAA tournament openerBeat writers predict Syracuse to beat Bryant and advance to 2nd round of NCAA tournamentMassa’s warrior-like faceoff style transforming Bryant lacrossecenter_img The Syracuse attack doesn’t pay much attention to double teams. It can’t — mostly because there are so many. But also because it’s not its nature to. Dylan Donahue often drew two while tearing through the early part of the Orange’s schedule. Randy Staats’ midseason surge moved the defensive focus onto him. Kevin Rice’s merciless operation from behind the cage has demanded as many as three defenders on multiple occasions. It’s been a revolving door — one attack draws extra attention until another gets hot. Until it shifts. Then shifts again. “We move the ball around and different guys get chances,” Donahue said. “I feel like I’m really benefiting from the way we’re playing right now.”As second-seeded Syracuse (11-4, 2-3 Atlantic Coast) starts its NCAA tournament run against Bryant (15-4, 5-1 Northeast) at 7:30 p.m. in the Carrier Dome on Sunday, Donahue’s off-ball instincts could allow him to further capitalize on his teammates’ success. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Bulldogs have the best faceoff specialist in the country in Kevin Massa and tend to take long possessions. The Orange will need to capitalize on its scoring opportunities, and Donahue, whose 55.4 shooting percentage is second in the nation by a fraction of a percent, is the perfect fit for the matchup. Donahue also leads Syracuse in scoring with 36 goals. Rice and Staats are close behind with 33 and 32, respectively. “(Rice) and (Staats) have been great this year, and that’s going to continue going into the tournament,” Donahue said. “It definitely helps when those guys are going well and I’ll be ready.”It’s hard to play a secondary role in Syracuse’s balanced offense. Aside from the starting attack, the Orange’s two-line midfield rotation features six different players — most notably Derek Maltz, Hakeem Lecky, Billy Ward and Nicky Galasso — that can score at any time. When the second line is on the field, the team plays like it has six attacks on the field.Maltz, Ward and Galasso are all former attacks and every game has the potential to turn out a different go-to option. “We like to move the ball and it can end up with anyone,” said Maltz, who moved from attack to the second-line midfield earlier in the season. “I don’t think (Donahue) necessarily flies under the radar because of that. If he is, then our offense is just something else. “But he does such a good job of finding the right spot and getting the best shot.”That was no more apparent in Syracuse’s 16-15 win over Duke in the semifinals of the ACC tournament on April 25. A game prior, Staats and Rice lit up Hobart for nine combined goals and had a hand in 11 of the Orange’s 14. So with the game tied and 15 seconds to go, the Blue Devils’ aptly keyed on the pair.Staats cradled at the top of the zone and drew the defense’s attention. Then he found Rice in the middle of the field before the Duke defense shifted to obstruct Rice’s path to the goal. Donahue just took what the defense gave him off the ball, dashing to the right doorstep before quick-sticking a Rice pass into the back of the net with less than a second on the clock – his fourth of the contest and the game-winner. “If you think about it, no one else on our team makes that kind of play,” Rice said. The NCAA tournament is familiar territory for Donahue. Last year, he was named to the NCAA all-tournament team after collecting 13 points — eight goals and five assists — in four games. Syracuse’s last NCAA tournament started with a 12-7 win over Bryant. If the Bulldogs are to avenge that loss, they have to limit the production of Rice, then Staats, then Donahue. If that’s how Bryant categorizes the Orange attack, Donahue’s sharp shooting could head the charge. “We always say we like double teams because they are good for the offense,” Donahue said. “Bad for the guy with the ball, and great for everybody off it.” Commentslast_img read more
